Still in Beta

I try to pitch Tunic to William. We discuss Elden Ring’s “hitbox gore”. Somehow Kingdom Hearts 4 is already announced. There’s a long tangent on J.J. Abrams and how terrible Fringe is. There’s also Digital Coke now.

I give William a minute to get Elden Ring out of his system before I talk Bayonetta 2. We briefly discuss time travel rules, what it meant to be a PG-13 movie in the 80s, and Japan’s issue with the mosaic filter. Then it’s on to the future of the videogame industry and NFTs, and we top it off with edible ears and other possible celebrity violence inspired foods.

William decides to predict the plot of The Batman as we come up with our first bit we end up calling “Unviews.” We finally discuss how we finished Assassin’s Creed Valhalla after playing too long. I talk Hades and William brings up Elden Ring. And at some point we talk about comic book religion.

It’s Valentine’s Day and that means we’re talking about the Super Bowl, or rather we talk about mascots and the Air Bud movies. Valentine’s Day also means Batman and Pizza and the Batman pizza calzone hybrid. We’ve also been playing a lot of Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla and discuss the mechanics and difficulty settings as well as what we can remember about Assassin’s Creed lore.

We’re back from holiday and starting the new year with discussions of The fourth Matrix movie, Boba Fett and living in an age of nostalgia. The potential for a Marvel Cinematic Oroboros. Batman, The Cereal, how NFTs are disgusting, more Star Wars somehow, and end with asking why I’m not just killing everyone in Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla.

This week we have a PSA about frozen pizza that you really should listen to. Then we move on to games like finishing up The Ascent, Narita Boy, and Hob. Secret endings to games and Mass Effect. Shooting your boy in the face in Fallout 4. And I admit I’ve come around on Ted Lasso, but we don’t think it’s a comedy show.

This week we talk Arby’s Curly Fry Vodka and what the future of quick service liquor holds. Hob, wrapping up Ghost of Tsushima’s Iki Island expansion. More talk about The Ascent’s odd design choices. Skyrim is coming out again? Remember VR? And the insanity that has been the GTA Trilogy Definitive Edition release and why I should stop being excited for things.

This week we talk a bit more about Ghost of Tsushima’s Director’s Cut. GTA’s PS2 Era trilogy is getting a remake to the surprise of no one, leading to a discussion of 2000s era nostalgia being in. Finally we talk about Batman again and how Kevin Conroy is still the best, and we also start to wonder if we’re even still Star Wars fans at this point.

It turned out our first episode of 2020 was our last and only. But we’re going at it again now remotely. We try to catch backup with what we’ve been playing, Death Stranding, New World, Ghost of Tsushima, and The Ascent. We also talk about the Mario movie casting.

First episode of 2020. We go over some of the games we’ve been able to play over the holidays, like Nier: Automata, Jedi: Fallen Order, Disco Elysium, and even Death Stranding! Put your fluids in tubes and carry the corpse of your mom!
